Thread Starter 
I just wanted to get your opinion on this build if everything is good to go. Any other pc parts I should look into buying, is appreciated.

My budget is around $1,200.
Crossfire-Yes
OC-Yes


Already bought a few things...
Case-RV02
Corsair H70
& Saitek Eclipse III
The prices of the three have aleady been added in.

Everything else-

No No , you can flash the BIOS of the 6850 to a 6870 but you cant unlock the shaders since its locked at the ASIC level.

The 6950 is able to unlock.

Yeah. Googled that up, staying with the 6870 unless I have to downgrade to save $20.
